Poets are invited to join this one-of-a0kind contest, based on Allen Ginsberg’s famous phrase “First thought best thought” which described the Beat poets’ love for spontaneity and immediacy in the arts. They are invited to contemplate artwork by the featured artists at RockStar Gallery and to write a poem in response to one of the pieces. Poets will have one hour to pen an ekphrastic poem, which they will read to an audience of listeners, posting their poem beside the piece that inspired it.
